I recently had a wave of enthusiasm for NetEpic and had a go at painting some Heresy era Death Guard, it doesn’t take much to send me into a painting frenzy for epic scale 40k. I always find epic models to be very rewarding projects to work on. It’s a damn shame they have dropped support for this scale. Luckily I have a decent horde of those old models so that I can now paint up several armies for it at my leisure.
So I decided on space marines and messed about with the Minotaur colour scheme which is basically copper coloured. I didn’t like it and changed to a heresy era Death Guard colour scheme which I think is much brighter on the tabletop.
You want to be able to make out those details at this scale so a bright scheme is your friend in this regard. The Death Guard being predominantly white fit the bright requirement nicely and I really like the burnished gold edging on the armour to boot.
The green colour I could take or leave and notably the original Death Guard scheme was red and white which looks kind of cool, but I painted them green anyways…for now.
